Afternoon Fun

In lieu of having my pc, I've been knitting, reading and spending time with the Youngest.  Today he told me he wanted to build a robot.  I asked him what we were going to make it out of and he said, "metal.  Oh and we'll need oil..."  I did manage to convince him that he could make a robot that didn't need oil and this is what he/we came up with:

It's not very fancy, I'll grant you that, but you should have seen his face light up.  He hasn't put it down since.  Pringles can, aluminum foil, pipe cleaners, pompoms, tape, glue and sharpie markers.  All you need for an afternoon of fun.

Wanna see how happy he was?

Have a great weekend!

Yet More Computer Issues

Once again I seem to have technology working against me.  Besides the trials and tribulations of the blog kind that happened last week and is still not completely resolved, yesterday afternoon my computer decided to up and die on me.  This pc is about 6 months old!   It's hardware related, that's all I know at this point.  I'm blaming Dell.

I'm currently using my husband's dinosaur of a laptop to reach the outside world with.  So if you don't hear from me, I'm trapped behind ancient technology!  Of course, I'm lucky to have that.

I'll have a Stitches South report for you in a couple of days.  For now, I'm going to go harass the Tech Guy.
